I am lost.
I have 3 young children (youngest 5mo, eldest just turned 3yo).
We lived remotely. Things got heated one night & my husband slapped me. I packed up the kids and left.
It’s been about 2.5 months now. We have been working on us (kind off - more like pretend it never happened) & he has come down during his time off work to see the kids (3 times approx).
I started texting an old friend (male). Nothing in it, he found out and has now called the marriage off. Says he can’t trust me (I suppose I can understand that) & that he feels betrayed etc.
He read the messages, saw there was nothing in them but still classified them as cheating. Doesn’t understand why I couldn’t speak to a girlfriend about the stuff (just day-to-day chit chat).
Now I’m so upset the marriage is off. But I can’t help feel it’s an overreaction?
But then again.. clearly we have been separated for awhile.. hence why I haven’t taken the kids back home.
Don’t really know what I’m asking. I don’t even know why I was texting the guy. Lonely maybe? I don’t know.
I have had the 3 young kids day in day out. Maybe I was just craving adult interaction? Or was I secretly looking for more? God I sound crazy!
